The Daily Caller: Citizens United President: Hillary’s Desire To Pack Courts To Overturn SCOTUS Is ‘Surreal’

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton promised to pack the courts with judges who would rule in favor of overturning the Citizens United case, and Citizens United president David Bossie is calling such a pledge “surreal.”

“I will do everything I can to appoint Supreme Court justices who protect the right to vote and do not protect the right of billionaires to buy elections,” Clinton told supporters during her trip to Iowa recently, The New York Times reported.

“Hillary Clinton is saying that she will appoint a person to the Supreme Court who will not uphold and defend the First Amendment ought to frighten the American people,” Bossie told One America News. He added that Clinton “fundamentally, wants to throw away the First Amendment based on a case that was critical of [her] … is a little surreal.”

National Review: Teflon Tony Rodham, the Clintons’ Shady Id

Sitting in a courtroom three years ago, after skipping out on a sizable legal bill, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s youngest brother struck a reassuring tone: Don’t worry, the money is coming.

“I deal through the Clinton Foundation,” Tony Rodham said, according to court transcripts uncovered by the New York Times. He gave his word that Hillary and Bill were setting him up with Haitian-government permits to build a $22 million housing development in the earthquake-stricken country.

“I hound my brother-in-law, because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from,” Rodham explained, promising a $1 million check once the Haitian-government paved the way, enough both to cover the outstanding legal fees and take his family to Disney World.

Washington Examiner: State Dept. stonewalls release of Clinton staff's emails about temporary IG

State Department officials are battling a pair of Freedom of Information Act requests for emails and memos that discuss the agency's temporary inspector general and the influence Hillary Clinton and her staff may have had on his oversight of the agency.

Citizens United, a conservative nonprofit, also sought any documentation of high-level discussions about a February 2013 inspector general report published just as Clinton exited the State Department in the FOIA requests it filed in September of last year.

The State Department argued Friday the "nature and scope" of the group's requests were too broad to estimate how many records might have mentioned the interim inspector general, the controversial report or a Government Accountability Office report from April 2011 that raised many of the same concerns about allowing a temporary watchdog to head the agency.

McClatchy: Republicans seek Clinton-era documents from State Department

WASHINGTON — The Republican Party is seeking documents from the State Department that could shed light on whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s office interfered with Freedom of Information Act as was reported earlier this week.

Clinton’s political staff personally reviewed and negotiated the release of public records at the department requested under the Freedom of Information Act and, in some cases, blocked documents’ release, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Wall Street Journal: Hillary’s Supreme Court Litmus Test

Perhaps you remember when litmus tests for Supreme Court nominees were frowned upon, even by the most ideological candidates. That was when the litmus-testing came from the right on abortion. Hillary Clinton broke through that barrier on the left this week when she announced that support for restrictions on political speech would make or break her supreme court choices.

Hillary Clinton and the State Department on Tuesday insisted they are not slow-walking the public release of her emails during her time as secretary of state, while a federal judge ordered up a plan for a rolling release of the hotly anticipated documents.

“Nobody has a bigger interest in getting them released than I do,” Clinton said to reporters in a rare instance of fielding press questions on the campaign trail. Story Continued Below

The 55,000 pages of emails have become the source of much heartburn, speculation and bureaucratic man-hours since news emerged earlier this year that Clinton used a private email server during her time as secretary of state.

CNN: Judge considers 'rolling' release of Hillary Clinton emails

U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Columbia Rudolph Contreras asked the State Department to file a notice that would include a proposed deadline for the release of Hillary Clinton's emails, as well as a new proposal for a schedule that involves releasing documents on a rolling basis.

A lawyer for journalist Jason Leopold, who has filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking all the emails Clinton turned over from her private server, told the judge he wanted the Benghazi emails "produced immediately" and requested that the other emails — some 55,000 pages — be released on a rolling basis. He also asked for periodic updates on the production.

The government had stated in their filings to the court that it would complete a review of thousands of pages of by Jan. 15, 2016, according to papers in an ongoing Freedom of Information lawsuit, suggesting that the full release of documents wouldn't come out until next year.

LA Times: Clinton says she'd make Supreme Court picks aimed at campaign finance reform

Hllary Rodham Clinton was clear Monday during a campaign stop about one quality she would expect from her nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court if she were to become president – an overhaul of the rapidly evolving campaign finance system that is giving extremely wealthy donors ever more say in presidential contests.

Her position was remarkable for a candidate positioned to shatter fundraising records and push the boundaries of campaign finance law further than any Democrat who has ever run for the White House.

Breitbart: IT’S ECONOMICS 101: SUPPORT THE DENY AMNESTY CREDITS ACT

President Obama rewrote our nation’s immigration laws with just the stroke of his pen. This may turn out to be the most dangerous and disruptive action of his presidency. He disregarded the separation of powers and acted in clear defiance of Congress. In doing so, he promoted and rewarded illegal immigration, while putting our national security further at risk.

Obama’s amnesty scheme also has far-ranging economic consequences. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) programs have resulted in the deferred deportations of millions of illegal immigrants. Under the current provisions of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC) many of these illegal immigrants will qualify for a financial windfall of as much $35,000. This could result in the spending of over $10 billion in taxpayer funds.
